I am an alumnus of Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw. I have an extensive and long-lasting experience in matters related to foreigners’ legalization of stay in Poland. For more than 6 years I worked for the Department of Foreigners in the Division of Civilians and Foreigners Affairs of Łódź Voievodship Office in the City of Łódź. During the term in office I was engaged in working with legalization of stay procedures for citizens of EU countries and third countries, as well as with work permits for foreigners. Thanks to this experience, besides knowing the legal basis I also have a broad practical knowledge of the procedures related with getting permits for stay and work for foreigners. This work has brought me not only professional experience, but also allowed to broaden my knowledge of multicultural aspects. Alongside with wide-ranging contacting with foreigners during my work in the Voievodship Office, I on numerous occasions have participated in various symposiums, conferences and studies organized governmental and non-governmental organizations and related to human rights, migration, labor market and legal procedures applicable to foreigners. In 2014, I had decided to share my knowledge and completed a year-long course organized by the Helsinki Foundation For Human Rights, named “Take a course towards multiculturalism” where I acted as a trainer in multicultural competences. Currently, besides helping foreigners in settlement of various legal formalities I provide training on topics related to multiculturalism, antidiscrimination, human rights as well as procedures on legalization of stay in Poland and getting work permits.
